Try It at Home

Create a sound matching game. Fill plastic eggs or other small containers that close and are not clear. Fill pairs of eggs or containers with different items so you have one of each egg filled with the exact same noisy object. Shake each egg or container to find its match! This takes a bit of concentration!

Try to name sounds! Hide some objects like zippers, keys, or Velcro. Manipulate each thing while someone else guesses what’s making the hidden noise.
